What a pleasure it was to meet Takumi Minamino this week in Tokyo. Takumi is one of the most talented footballers of Japan’s current generation.
I was surprised by his excellent German as we talked about football, cars, and goals—on the pitch and in our careers. Takumi loves cars, and truly appreciates the Porsche brand. He himself owns a Porsche Cayenne in England.
Of course, we also had the time for some fun as we drove around Tokyo on the fully-electric Porsche Taycan. Takumi was impressed by the Taycan’s quick acceleration and comfort, he told me while driving the car.
As a German, I breathe football, and meeting a talent such as Minamino was awesome. Definitely, what a brilliant guy and a hard-working athlete. Check out the day we spent together in this exclusive video we prepared for you.
Hope to see you soon again Takumi.
